Pubblicità

Alan Greenspan è un economista statunitense.

Ha ricoperto la carica di Presidente della Federal Reserve, la banca centrale degli Stati Uniti d'America, dal 1987 al 2006. Attualmente lavora come consulente privato tramite la sua azienda, la Greenspan Associates LLC. Nominato al vertice della Federal Reserve dal presidente Ronald Reagan nell'agosto 1987, è stato riconfermato sino al 31 gennaio 2006, giorno del suo pensionamento.

Greenspan raggiunse il consiglio della Federal Reserve grazie ad una brillante carriera di economista e consulente. Nonostante la sua riservatezza, la sua figura raggiunse lo status di celebrità grazie al favore dei media. Greenspan fu criticato dai leader democratici del Congresso statunitense di politicizzare il suo incarico attraverso il sostegno alla privatizzazione del sistema previdenziale e del taglio delle tasse che, a loro avviso, avrebbe aumentato il deficit. Le politiche monetarie condotte dalla Fed di Greenspan sono ritenute una delle cause principali della crisi dei mutui subprime.

„I was intellectually limited until I met her.“

— Alan Greenspan
Context: It did not go without notice that Ayn Rand stood beside me as I took the oath of office in the presence of President Ford in the Oval Office. Ayn Rand and I remained close until she died in 1982, and I'm grateful for the influence she had on my life. I was intellectually limited until I met her. Chapter Two, "The Making of an Economist", p. 52.

„It was the failure to properly price such risky assets that characterized the crisis.“

— Alan Greenspan
Context: Much of the securitization took the form of collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) with senior credit tranches certified by rating agencies as AAA. It was the failure to properly price such risky assets that characterized the crisis. "Epilogue", p. 512.

„I know you think you understand what you thought I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant“

Attributed to Greenspan by Rupert Cornwell, "Alan Greenspan: The buck starts here" http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/profiles/alan-greenspan-the-buck-starts-here-595789.html, The Independent, 27 April 2003, citing an unspecified Capitol Hill hearing. However, as Ralph Keyes notes in The Quote Verifier (2006, p. 233), "This popular tongue twister gets attributed to the obfuscator du jour." The earliest known print attribution is to Robert McCloskey, U.S. State Department spokesman, by Marvin Kalb, CBS reporter, in TV Guide, 31 March 1984, citing an unspecified press briefing during the Vietnam war. Earlier attributions include: "a high government official", Annual Report, North American Gas Tax Conference, Federation of Tax Administrators, 1967; Jerry Lewis (a sign pasted on the camera during a movie shoot), by Dick Kleiner, Hollywood Correspondent, Sumter Daily Item, Feb. 4, 1970; a sign on the desk of Suzanne Schroeder, collector of bureaucratic gobbledygook, AP wire story, Sarasota Herald-Tribune, July 3, 1973; Jack Nicklaus paraphrasing Richard Nixon, by Larry Dorman, The Palm Beach Post, Dec. 8, 1979; and "a Hollywood film director", by J.D. Douglas, The Third Way, 29 December 1977. Additionally, a thesis monograph by Michael David Katz, Georgia State University, 1973 is titled with the quote. On the back of the first Stealers Wheel album, a very similar statement attributed to band member Rod Coombes is found: "We know that you believe you understand what you think we said, but we are not sure you realize that what you heard is not what we meant." The album was released in 1972. See Richard Nixon: "Now, when individuals read the entire transcript of the [March] 21st [1973] meeting, or hear the entire tape, where we discussed all these options, they may reach different interpretations, but I know what I meant, and I know also what I did"

„Those of us who have looked to the self-interest of lending institutions to protect shareholder's equity – myself especially – are in a state of shocked disbelief.“
